Vax vacuum cleaners reduced by more than £100

Miss Thrifty8 August 27, 2009

cheap-hoover I like Vax. Their products aren’t wildly expensive – a snip, compared to the spendy Dyson range – but their vacuum cleaners and hoovers upright models are very sturdy. Our vac is a Vax, kindly donated by Frugal Grandma’s next door neighbour, Dorothy. I suspect that it is decades old: it is one of those round orange beasts with the 1980s vibe. It weighs a ton and heaving it up and down the stairs is a pain, but it runs and runs and runs. I suspect that these old Vax cleaners are like cockroaches: the Apocalypse will come and go and they will still be hanging around, roaring away and doing their thing.

For this reason, the latest Argos offer caught my eye. (These days the Argos press bods send me a weekly e-mail with details of that week’s discounts, which is quite handy.) It goes by the title of Vax Power 2 Anniversary Edition Bagless Upright Cleaner.

It is also going for a bargain price: £49.99, reduced from £159.99.

Oh dear – sorry Barbara, but it looks as though you had to be especially quick off the mark with this one! Argos do shift their prices around with regularity.

As you report, the Vax is now priced at £79.99. There is a note at the bottom of the product page, in small print, which reads:

* Please note item 4063878 has previously been on sale at £49.99.

Current selling price valid until 15/09/2009

I will let you know if and when the price goes down again.

Best wishes,

Thanks for the tip!

Also, Netto currently has the latest (more powerful) version (the P4) for £69.99, currently. This is £5 more than direct from Vax, but may be easier and certainly quicker!
